About Jenni Field:
First and foremost, I am a teacher. I left the formal education field
after 16 years teaching Special Education to attend culinary school
at Orlando Culinary Academy, a Le Cordon Bleu program, and
eventually become a pastry chef. I worked my way up from pastry
cook to pastry sous chef and pastry chef and had the privilege of helping
to open an upscale gastropub and set the dessert menu as well as
our signature bread service and bar snacks.
While I enjoyed working in the restaurant business, the teacher in me
missed teaching, so I left food service to pursue a career in blogging,
food writing and recipe development. My background in education
allows me to teach fundamentals and bedrock technique while
maintaining an engaging tone.
I take great pride in hearing from many readers who say “Thank you!
Now I understand!”
I live just south of Raleigh, NC with my wonderful husband (The Beloved), our five cats and the occasional foster kitten or two.
Thanksgiving Dessert Tips and Ideas
Our guests this morning are Chef and Owner of The Ripe Choice Catering Kitchen, Tammy Lipps and Chef Laura Mandracchia owner of Cake Bakeshop. Also joining us are Gretchen Tiernan and Megan Richardson of Sand Spa.
In addition to her husband, Mark Lipps, her local catering kitchen and The Ripe Choice-To-Go business are part of a family of three boys, one dog, three fish and a tortoise. They have one son out of college, one in college and one still in high school.
In 2011, Chef Laura Mandracchia became the owner of Cake Bakeshop. Laura comes from a long line of bakers as both her grandmother and great grandmother were bakers in Denmark. Laura’s greatest culinary influence and hero is her Mormor (mother’s mother in Danish). Whether they were making something as simple as coffee and pastry, going to the Farmers Market or the “olive oil guy” in Napa, food was always there. She taught Laura that sometimes you need “just a little bit - not too much “ when adding that special ingredient. “Everything I bake has a touch of Mormor.” It is quite easy to see that this is what Laura was meant to do.
All of these businesses are located in the North End area of Manhattan Beach. We’re going to discuss their efforts in the continuing development of the North End business community.

Once again we are going back up to Southern Vermont to the area of Manchester. It is there that a pastry and candy company called Mother Myricks is located. They are well know for having the best butter crunch candy and a particular cake called Lemon Lulu. Ron Mancini is the owner of this establishment. I will eventually do a taste test between their brownie and one from Fairytale Brownies. In the meantime we can hear how some of the confections are made....without giving any secrets away.
First there were the Restaurant Wars. Then all the various cooking wars, including dessert-only wars. Then – you had to see this coming – the Cupcake Wars. My guest this week is Jason Hisley, and you know from that show. He was a winner! At the time, he was head chef at the Flavor Cupcakery. Now he not only has his own store called La Cakerie, but he's a chain! He has one store in Mt. Vernon and another opening very soon in Towson.
None of this is by chance. After graduating with a BA in Baking and Pastry Arts – did you even know that degree existed! – he traveled Europe, finally earning a Pastry Certification from the Restaurant School in Vitznau, Switzerland. That training is what got him the work that led to Flavor Cupcakery and onto fame and Fortune on the Food Network, and then to his own stores.
La Cakerie has a much more extensive inventory than his award-winning cupcakes. It will have pies, pretzels, cakes of all kinds, shapes, and sizes, AND he can cater to any diet, be it gluten-free, vegan, or whatever.
Here's one of the really surprising things about this guy: He's only twenty-five. Sheesh! What's he going to have done by thirty?

President Barack Obama is in hot water once again after making a strange statement during a farewell to White House pastry chef Bill Yosses - who is leaving that position - by saying: “We call Bill the ‘Crustmaster,’ because his pies… I don’t know what he does, whether he puts crack in them, or…”
While the individuals in attendance found it to be amusing and many on the blog message boards and social media have downplayed the seriousness of the statement, many were literally outraged that the President of the United States would be so insensitive to an issue that has wiped out entire generations and communities of Black people in America and the entire world.
Here we chop it up and dissect this statement as well as many other questions that need to be asked about President Obama and his administration in a manner that might not be to popular with many but must be applauded for its honesty whether you agree with the dialogue or not.

PAYING YOUR DUES TO REACH SUCCESS WITH WORLD PHOTOGRAPHER JOHN OLIVO
Success is the prize that doesn’t come without hard work, humbling ourselves, making ourselves teachable and determined that whatever we do along the way is done with excellence.
In this episode of God, Where Were You When? world-photographer John Olivo talks to host Sherrie Clark specifically about this subject, one that he knows all too well. He had humbled himself and remained an assistant to a master photographer who had the best studio in New York City, sticking it out for eight years despite the fact that all previous assistants lasted no more than a couple of weeks. His teachable spirit paid off in more ways than one. This master photographer taught John everything he needed to know about being a successful master photographer himself, travelling the world to photograph royalty and celebrities, as well as how to operate a successful photography business.
